The cause of the Churchill brothers.
Bikash Singh (20th) scored TRAU’s solitary goal.
Churchill Brothers had a dream start as they took the lead in the third minute. Spanish playmaker Tana fed Kapil Hoble’s ball down the right and made a run into the box before cutting it back for Abdoulaye Sane to slot home.
The visitors benefited from Bishorjit Singh’s hard work as they went on to score the equalizer in the 20th minute.
Against the run of play, Salam Johnson Singh managed to sneak behind the Churchill defense, made a run in the box and then found Bikash Singh Sagolsem, who pulled out a good finish to beat Churchill goalkeeper Albino Gomes at a narrow angle.
On the half hour mark, just when the visitors thought they had a foot in the game, the hosts stunned them with two quick goals.
In the 34th minute, Hoble put in another cross from the right wing, aiming for Rama Gaonkar on the edge of the six-yard box. However, as Rama Gaonkar missed the cross, it reached an unmarked Sane at the far post and the Senegalese duly regained the lead for the hosts.
Two minutes later, Tana added the third goal. The midfielder initially fed Sane on the right wing and the striker returned the ball back to Tana inside the box. The Spaniard made no mistake in placing the ball in the back of the net. The Red Cars scored the fourth goal and Tana was once again in the thick of things as he found Rama Gaonkar, who made a diagonal run in the box, dribbled past the goalkeeper Bishorjit Singh before shooting the ball in an empty net.
The hosts went on to score two more goals in a span of five minutes. They had the chance to get an own goal in the 89th minute when TRAU’s Naresh Singh scored an own goal while clearing a goal shot. After that, Savio continued to combine with Kamo Stephane Bayi, and the latter went home.
Churchill Brothers moved to sixth in the table with 12 points from nine games, while TRAU remained on 13 points.
